TODAY, we shall continue our lessons on parts of speech, looking into “Pronoun” .

DON’T FORGET : The words written in bracket is our pronunciation guide. Pronounce them well and you’re good.

Before we continue, let us remember that a pronoun is a word, or those words used instead of a noun. That is, a pronoun can conveniently replace a noun, without altering the meaning. Местоимения это слова, которые указывают на предметы и лица или их признаки, но не называют их. (mestoimenye eta slova, Kotorie ukazivaut na predmeti e litse ili ik priznaki, nor Ni nazivaoot ik).


Russian personal pronoun

На пример… (Na primer)… For example,

(1) Джон хороший мальчик… (John horoshiy malchick)


John is a good boy.

(2) Он хороший мальчик… (on horoshiy malchick)


He is a good boy.

In the sentences above, “He” in sentence two is an example of pronoun used instead of “John” a proper noun used in sentence one, yet refering to the same person.

It is good to note that, in the premises of a pronoun, there must have been a foundational idea or knowledge about the subject in question.

That is to say, the meaning of a pronoun used is better understood by a discussant with a previous knowledge of the subject.

На пример… (Na primer)… For example,

(1) Джон мальчик… (John malchick)


John is a boy.

(2) Он мой сосед…( on moi sased)


He is my neighbor.

N. B sentence two not only gave an extended information on the subject in question, but also got rid of repetition.

есть девять типов местоимения в русском языке… (est devyat tipov mestoimenye v Ruskom yizike)… There are none (9) types of pronoun in Russian language, they include :
